wall street journal," -- -- he went on to say, "the economy is recovering too slowly and should not be regarded as the new normal." >> we need a new approach. an approach that removes obstacles of growth, prosperity -- of growth and prosperity. unleash the nation of builders. to become a nation of builders and i think we have to stop picking winners and losers and start focusing on expanding opportunity for everyone. we started out by giving our kids a good chance at an education. to hirend opportunity axa's education so students are ready for tomorrow's job market. to become a nation of builders again, we need to fix our tax code. if we clear out all of these loopholes and make the tax code fair it is going to make it easier to understand, we will be creating more incentives to bring jobs home, and keep our resources here in america. a host: john boehner before the national association of manufacturers. this headline from "the -- this editorial from "the wall street journal" -- joseph on our twitter page has this comment -- logan is on the phone from las vegas on our independen
not be until december or early next year. third point, the u.s. economy's still only growing sluggishly, only 2% growth. just about 1% inflation. modest profits. falling gold. and a steady king dollar. interest rates in my view are not going to skyrocket. there's more money to be made in stocks. the second half is going to be a slower slog than the first half. okay? that's my take on the story. here now we bring in former federal reserve governor frederick mishkin, currently an economics professor at columbia university. welcome back, rick. i just want to ask you, this is a very complicated news conference and a lot of people are saying many different things. first of all, let me ask you if i have the story right. i heard the news conference. the fed will slow down bond purchases toward the end of the year. is that what bernanke said? >> i think what they're trying to do, they've been very concerned, i'm sure, about all the volatility in the markets. and they want to make sure that people understand that in fact they are going to get out of this purchase program, which raises a lot of complicat
a crucial role in our economy and vital role in our communities. mr. president, that was proven last night at 5:00 when the congressional budget office, this nonpartisan arm that we look to for direction with what things cost and don't cost here on capitol hill with our legislation, they issued a statement yesterday that this bill certainly, that's on the floor today, this bill certainly is good for the economy. as i will say a couple times during my brief remarks here, it's going over the next two decades, what's left in this one and the next decade, reduce the deficit in america by almost $1 trillion. of course as we've said here previously, previous to getting the report from c.b.o., this legislation is good for the economy and good for security. that's a good package. well, mr. president, these 11 million people need a pathway to get right with the law. a commonsense bipartisan reform proposal before the senate will help them do just that. it will reduce illegal immigration by strengthening our borders. it will fix our broken immigration system and crack down on unskraoup less employer
about how the economy is still a bit dicey and jobs aren't being created fast enough. now they're thinking he just wants to put everybody to work, he's not worried about the bonds. bondholders are saying to heck with this, you're not going to protect us, economy is way too strong for bernanke to keep buying bonds, he can't keep rates down, he shouldn't even try. the owners of bonds aren't as worried about the ongoing drag of the federal government that bernanke's fretting about and talked about today. they aren't worried about higher taxes, sequester spending cuts or any lack of any serious attempt by elected officials to get hiring going. they are selling their bonds right now before things get so much better that those bonds will be worth even less! to understand how bonds work i've got to do something different because i know a lot of people can't tell the difference between a stock and a bond. so i'm going to -- i'm going to do a little fictional analysis here. imagine that the united states is a publicly traded company. and it's got this really counterintuitive stock that
university, about the state of the u.s. economy. later in the program we will be joined by a matthew segal. he will be here to talk about issues important to young americans. you are watching "washington journal." we will be right back. ♪ >> when you talk about transparency to the american public, there is -- you are going to give up something. you are going to be giving signals to our adversaries as to what our capabilities are. the more specific you get about the program, the more specific about the oversight, the more specific you get about the capabilities and successes, to that extent you have people sitting around saying, "ok, now i understand what it can be done with our numbers in yemen and in the united states and consequently i am going to find another way to communicate." there is a price to be paid for that transparency. where that line is drawn, in terms of identifying what our capabilities are, is out of our hands. if you tell us to do it one way we will do it that way. there is a price to be paid for transparency. >> robert muller makes his last scheduled appearance before
that actually is a good balance and works for everyone in this sector of the economy. this bill first creates a way for current undocumented workers to obtain legal status through the blue card program if they've worked at least a hundred workdays or 575 hours from january 1, 2010 through december 31, 2012. all the blue cardholders will receive biometric identification. employers will be required to provide a record of their employment to the department of agriculture as well. and to be eligible, then, for a green card, the workers must have worked for at least a hundred days per year for eight years prior to enactment or 150 days for five years prior to enactment and they also would have to show that they pay taxes on their income that they earn while in blue card status, that they have not been convicted of any felony or violent misdemeanor as well. next, the bill also establishes an agricultural worker program to assign work visas for immigrant workers who don't wish to live in the united states but want to be able to come to the united states to be able to work legally. workers must regis
, given the fact that we are becoming energies efficient with fracking? our economy is growing, the dow is up today 161 points, can we ignore the world events and continue to go on with the kind of relationships we used to need? >> no. i think it is more important that america become a player. we still have so many other issues. as the world is getting smaller, america must exert their influence in ways that were unforeseen 20 or 30 years ago. we have to be engaged. if we take an internal role of we are not needed as we were, i think that we do it at our peril. lori: a lot of economists are very concerned about this currency war that is underway. you have countries at the g8 representing $7 trillion in global economic wealth. do you think that that topic will come up? how do you realistically have a discussion about a trade deal if you do not talk about what is really going on. >> there is no question about it. if we will have a trade agreement, it has to be free, it has to be fair, and it has to be equitable to all parties. if one party has an upper hand, it is honored as a breach. com
the original small business. small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the engines of job creation. and over half of americans own or are employed by a small business. mr. speaker, there are 30 million small businesses in the united states, and they create seven out of 10 new american jobs each and every year. small businesses are the key to economic prosperity. the government does not create jobs. american small businesses create jobs. the government and its lawmakers should do everything in their power to cultivate an ideal environment for small businesses to grow and prosper by removing roadblocks to growth and building economic certainty. we need to keep the focus on the american worker and on small businesses. we need to remember that every week is small business week. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the entleman's time has expired. further requests for one minute? for what reason does the gentleman from texas rise? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one inute. >> thank you, mr. speake
the food away, and buy one lobster and get one lobster, and it is bad. darden blames the economy for people not spending at lo of money to buy the breadsticks. i don't want to hear that. >> and meanwhile, we think that the economy is improving and yesterday the numbers in a different environment most likely would have been positives for the equity market, but we are not overwhelmed by the worries of the philly fed, and numbers that most people thought were better than they thought it would be. >> and i look at the bonds and how is the 10-year, strong. okay. buy me 50,000, whatever. we are in one of the moments and if we are not looking at the bonds, you know, having fun. >> and something else that people were looking at is the chinese shibor. we don't talk about it a lot. >> right, something that can jump up to bite you. >> and the rate has come down overnight, and they are trying to tighten up the money supply, and tighten it up, and the corporate inflows are not as strong as they might have originally been for china, but all part of the plan in a way of 300 million people, and 15 years to
. there haven't been a lot of good things, the nsa stuff in particular. the economy is beginning to look a little firmer. and so, usually, that is the fundamental push in the trend line. so, yeah, there is a little surprise there. >> bill: you know, all of the talk about -- of course, benghazi, the irs, the department of justice and then, as you points out, the nsa. it all had its impact the. on nsa, the president said the intelligence community has to explain what this program is all about. they made their first attempt saying this has foiled 50 different terrorist plots. do you think this buries the issue and americans will accept it and go along now? >> there are a couple of different layers to the issue. one is: do -- -- does the public generally accept the notion of vacuuming up all of this data? if it is persuaded that this is what is necessary to stop terrorist actions. my guess is the public would be split but basically lean towards favoring it. and as we have seen over the past couple of weeks in polling on this stuff. the second is: does the
a facebook page now. so, you know, the world has really changed, and our energy economy has similarly changed. if you go back again to that time ten years ago, oil production, of course, continued to fall in the united states, imports increasing dramatically. top business leaders and thinkers from lee raymond to alan greenspan be projected an enormous natural gas shortfall and, in fact, there were lots of investments for lng imports. today we talk about blend w5u8 problems. pv, distributed pv, $10 a watt. today we're talking about incredibly reduced costs. wind power up by a factor of 15 in that time period. so there really has been tremendous change, in fact, even in the four years since president obama took office we've seen this. most especially, of course, we all know how unconventional gas and oil have been a game changer in this, in this country. we often think of the energy industry, the energy system as one of incredible inertia and very hard and resistant to change. and there are some, there is some truth in that, and there are some good reasons. capital intensity, all kinds of issue
about the underlying economy. >> it's the economico outlook. >> you don't think he'll use the word? >> i don't think he'll use the letter. >> people will ask questions. >> but as long as -- as long as it doesn't start with a t. if there is a t in the world somewhere, he may use it. >> we could have a drinking game. first question has to be about tapering. will use the word taper. >> either tape ever or your ter. >> i was at a party with a drinking game, but it was with lemonade. makes no sense. they're practicing for the day when -- legmonade, you'll just get sick. >> that's okay. learn a lesson. >> i know. >> let's take a look at europe. again, futures are indicated higher and that may be because the expectation is that the fed will in fact slightly lower their economic outlook. if that he another case, you would expect they would not be pulling qe anytime soon. but right now the market is barely bunching in europe. in asia, you can see the nikkei was up about 1.8%. so volatility continues there. hang seng down by just over 1%. oil prices right now are indicated up about 50 cents. wti i
constituents have made it clear time and time again that we must make us work together to grow the economy. once again, republicans refuse to listen. instead, we are debating legislation that endangers women's health and disrespects the judgment of american women and their doctors on how to make judgments about women's health. this bill would deny care to women and the most desperate of circumstances. it is yet another republican attempt to endanger women. it is disrespectful to women, unsafe or families, and unconstitutional. at the start of the congress, the republicans take great pride in reading the constitution, but then they proceed to ignore it. one example is this clearly unconstitutional bill. they claim to reduce the role of government, except when it comes to women's most personal decisions about their reproductive health. leading medical experts believe this legislation is dangerous and wrong. that is the message we have seen from doctors and health- care providers who point out that this would put medical professionals in the untenable position when treating women in need -- w
, dana, you would think maybe he would talk about the global economy because, you know, germany's still very much struggling with its economy. it's so much tied to the united states. why not talk about that? >> well, it's hard to imagine it's not going to be at a least implicit in his speech. but one of the things that people may not know about president obama is that when he was here in the capital, when he was senator obama, that issue, the nuclear issue, was something on the top of his priority list. in fact, when he was campaigning in 2008 and making the point when he got to the general election that he could work across the aisle with republicans. one of the examples he could give is working with former indiana republican on the nuclear issue. that they even traveled together on it. this is actually something, he wasn't here very long as a senator. he didn't even finish his first term, but this is something when he was here briefly he did focus on. the other quick thing i want to point out, gloria talking about the big crowd of 2008 and the much smaller crowd here now that he's pre
has resulted in a significant boost for the local economy, especially for the travel industry, the leisure industry, restaurants, for example. shops. i'm proud to have worked on taiwan's entry into the visa waiver program because i know that as a result of this agreement taiwanese americans in southern california have a much easier time staying connected to their families. mr. speaker, as the number of visitors from taiwan has grown exponentially, there is an urgent need to ensure that taiwan has real time access to air safety information. strengthening air safety benefits american citizens as much as it does the taiwanese. every year tens of thousands of americans fly through taiwan's airspace which must be as safe as it can be, and this bill will certainly help. just as taiwan was allowed to join the world health organization as a result of the sars outbreak, so should taiwan be afforded the opportunity to observe the proceedings of the i.k.o. we all share the responsibility to ensure that international air travel be safe. taiwan's unique political status has thus far hinder
firm in the economy and therefore we can afford to get off of this morphine drip that has been the $85 billion bond buying program every single month. >> i think you hit the nail on the head which is why we have seen so much volatility in the markets because i am saying that glass had -- glass half full of the glass half full? and i agree with you in the sense. look at it as good news and bad news. eventually people will look at that and say, wait a second. this is positive. time for the patient to come off a life-support and see if they can read by themselves. if you read the tape today i agree with doreen in the sense that it is on very light volume, but i find it quite encouraging that the market held on to the 20 day moving average ahead of the fed after showing the witness that we saw yesterday afternoon. liz: and we have on the screen the leaders of all different types of names. really more leaders that laggers pushing this market higher, and then we get to a very interesting move for crude oil. today when you look and see that we are now well above $98 per barrel, you have to fi
>> talk about how you're going to turn the economy around. >> adios. >>. ♪ >> oh, sometimes i wish i was on the same stage with those guys. no, i'm not running. but i love to talk about them. here he is, again, he's back at it. slick rick perry. the governor of texas. it is all hat and no cattle. just wrapped up a five-day poaching tour for jobs in the northeastern portion of the united states. now, how many liberals are up in the northeastern portion of the united states believe a texas brain drain here. the texas brain wizard planted his cowboy boots here in new york city and in connecticut across the river hoping to rope in some business leaders to taking jobs to the lone star state. the governor's main message, very simple. no regulation and no state income tax. sounds really good, doesn't it? perry even put together this web video slamming new york and talking up texas. >> if you just took the book of rules and regulation in new york state. 49,000 pages and one reason small business owners tell us that new york is such a hard place to do business. >> a lot of the business owners
, hiring police officers and hiring firefighters. and it comes back to the economy. and if the sequester cuts are not done effectively and accurately, it's going to affect us on the streets where main street lives. >> so this may be an area where republicans and democrats, mayors from across the country will agree this weekend, but what can you all do about it? i mean, what kind of influence can you have? what can you accomplish with this meeting? >> well, i think congress listens to what mayors have to say, but, you know, congress is not necessarily a functional legislative body to begin with. so sometimes on some issues, i'm not sure our voices is as loud as it could be or received as loudly as it should be. but, you know, people live in cities. and i think they look at city government right now as being stronger and stronger and a more vital part of our economy than ever before. cities are where the jobs are being created. it's where the growth in our national economy is going to have to take place in we are going to continue to build this country. >> and finally, before you go, you a
we've got to get the economy jumpstarted and back on track in a manner that is sustainable for the programs that we all care about. one of of the ways to clearly do that at the -- at the cbo has indicated, and this is a nonpartisan operation, is to pass copperheads if immigration reform that provides an additional piece of evidence as to why this is so significant for us to get done and to get done sooner rather than later. ,ost: congressman jeffreys what is another issue, before we go to calls, that you focus on or that you think the congress should be addressing? i think we have to do with the gun violence problem we have in america. it is, katie, i understand that, but certainly as americans focus on the problem, and the aftermath of the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, the issue that we confront in the district, i represent a very urban district that has several neighborhoods in east new york,: the island, brownsville, that in the last several decades have gunrienced issues in violence. almostevery reagan, -- every weekend, there is an issue that has resulted from an il
in the local economy generated by the store and new jobs it creates. it has a multiplier effect. to know that this works, we need to look at pennsylvania. a similar program that began there in 2004 resulted in 88 projects being built or renovated in underserved urban and rural communities across the state. today, more than 5,000 jobs have been created and i know we all want to create jobs, and 400,000 people now have increased access to healthy foods. 30 million invested by the state has resulted in projects totalling more than $190 million. the pennsylvania program success rate has been better than the grocery industry overall. federal, state and many city governments are enacting legislation and policies to attract healthy food retail. this is tremendous momentum around the country right now to bring grocery stores to places that need them. also a diverse group of nearly 100 stakeholders support this bill, including policy link, the food trust, the national grosser's association and newly rouse agricultural, civil rights support this bill. the senate supports this -- the senate has rec
of money they're pumping into the economy each month. >> we will ease the pressure on the accelerator by gradually reducing the pace of purchases. >> reporter: the second, overnight thursday, bad news from china. manufacturing production fell for the first time in eight months. a sign that one of the world's most powerful economies isn't growing as fast as it had been. the pros on wall street say this was bound to happen after months of gains and record highs. and in fact, the fed pulling back might be a good sign that the economy's getting better. >> there is no fear. there is no panic that's going on. but i think we do know that it's going to be a nice slow, orderly process to see if our economy can stand on its own again. >> reporter: that doesn't make yesterday any prettier, and stocks were only part of it. a metal meltdown. 2 1/2-year lows for gold and silver. gold, the shelter from the storm in the recession, is dropping like a rock, losing a quarter of its value to far this year. don't be too afraid to peek at your 401(k). even after yesterday's dramatic drop, the dow was up mo
the detention facility at guantanamo bay, cuba. the latest data on the u.s. economy left something to be desired today. factory output barely rose in may, and consumer sentiment fell in june. wall street reacted with a friday sell-off. the dow jones industrial average lost nearly 106 points to close at 15,70. the nasdaq fell nearly 22 points to close at 3,423. for the week, both the dow and the nasdaq lost more than 1%. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to judy. >> woodruff: today the city of detroit, and its creditors, were presented with a series of painful options. retired city workers were warned of significant cuts in pensions and health insurance and creditors were told the city won't be able to pay them back. the day started with an announcement that the government already defaulted on some debt. it got worse from there. ray suarez has the story. >> make the banks pay. >> suarez: a handful of protesters picketed outside the westin hotel this morning, while inside, detroit's emergency manager kevyn orr laid out a last-ditch plan to 150 creditors to accept pennies on the
of the states like where i live in miami, don't have an economy, and basically they live off of federal money right? >> who -- >> caller: i said most southern states with these southern borders, most of these governors they don't have a real economy. there is no industry here. >> stephanie: they take more out of the federal government than they put in unlike most blue states that put in more than they take out. >> caller: exactly. my point is imagine with these border agents, that would only boost their economies, and if you think we have a problem now in trying to bring them to the table, you know, as far as negotiating with them, imagine, you know if they have a sort of fledgling economy, along with these federal dollars that are consistently going to be coming in. and if you flood the border with these agents forget about ever reducing it. because they always go back to the point where they need us. >> i think adding a few more border agents is going to not have much effect on the economy of a state. >> well, look at these states that have these prisons they are buil
that pitted him against his unlikely challenger in 2014. tough economy, we're talking about jobs in the state here. you're talking about somebody who molloy has made clear he might have his eye on the national stage a little bit. he has to get by in 2014. how does this issue affect him with perry coming in and maybe losing gun jobs a little bit. >> it's a choice he's going to have to make. between jobs and votes, really. when it comes down to it. i think he wins on the vote side. the national attention on this issue and at least in the northeast, perry will be vilified. i would love to see him meet up with chris christie. >> nobody is going to say that this year. >> it's a delicate balance that he's going to have to walk. i'm sure the nra is going to be going after him should some of these manufacturers leave. so, it's clearly an important calculation for perry to strengthen his national credential. ultimately i think molloy will be fine because he'll be fine on this issue and he'll bet support from around the country. >> i wonder how the et voers in connecticut would feel about it because th
's a reflection of the economy. i stand in support of mr. gowdy's safe act and we've seen as moving before in 1986 and if we go down that path it's not going to end well and it's an to have a devastating effect. thank you for allowing me to speak today. >> thank you, sheriff and we will now recognize mr. crane to read >> good afternoon, a ranking member conyers and members of the kennedy. we are still reading through this a fact introduced by congressman gowdy however my reaction is one of appreciation and support for his efforts. i applaud the congressman and his staff for creating a bill that makes public safety a priority that reforms enforcement. unfortunately, the gang of eight legislation reflects an absence of all enforcement input as it contains no tangible plan for border security and essentially ignores interior enforcement altogether while simultaneously treating it that his citizenship for members of criminal street gangs and most other criminal aliens. we hope the members of both parties in the house and in the senate will review the provisions of the safe act as the gang of eight leg
the fact the unions and taxes are the two things that bring down the nation's economy. anyone that loves history can see it over and over again, taxes, high taxes, they drive businesses out of a country to another country and it is hard to get them back. when you unionize to the point where it is ridiculous, sitting around pretending like they are union bosses, sucking up the workers' money, it is never going to work. never, ever. maybe if we look at greece and these other failures, you can see what is behind them. host: what can the president do this week at this economic gathering? that maybe hek can listen more than he speaks? -- caller: i think i can -- i think that maybe he can listen more than he speaks? host: what is your take on who he should be listening to? caller: i am not sure. you have a bunch of people with similar mindsets trying to solve problems they have all proved they cannot solve. florida, thankm you for the call. this twitter message from murray -- host: we want to get your thoughts on america's standing in the world and these issues hanging over the president as he
that we need to keep the economy going et cetera. and so if they really care about america, they understand in the future we need more workers. currently we have workers that don't have documents. whrs when you're undocumented, you're taking advantage after lot of fronts. most employers have good employees. but bad employers pay them less, they don't have benefits, if they get work, they are trashed and out they go. what happens to mter can worker that they also see wages depressed when these bad employers are using these people. if we would legalize these people and if they would have basic rights in the country, we would see all of america rise. >> glenn beck compared this conservative right to the civil rights movement. congressman, what is your response to that? >> that is -- not only -- it is almost harassy for him to make that comparison. in fact, it is. the civil rights movement is about fulfilling people's rights. to make the values of the nation real for all-americans, regardless and comprehensive reform. and it is about extending values to 11 million people here,

? >> a resounding no. the economy is going to continue to lift off. i think by november of 2014 the democrats are going to to be in a very strong position. the only way we move social in this country is by taking principle stands and sometimes have you to take a short-term political hit to move the country forward. >> speaking of honesty and trustworthiness, we just got fox news polls in moments ago which we'll bring you shortly. wow. this is not good news for the white house. gentlemen, thank you both so much. >>> we recently brought you the powerful story of the phoenix police officers who went beyond the call of duty for a 5-year-old girl. look at this picture. who lost her police officer dad to a hit-and-run driver. up next, a new twist as we learn the illegal immigrant accused of killing her father could now get special protection. we'll tell you why that is. >>> wait until you see what happened with the teenage fisherman who came face to face with a rare breed of shark and decided to go for a joy ride. all that as we have a former vice president and a brand new poll i just mentioned fro
into the mirror to look at history. let's quickly revisit the highlights. this president brought the economy back from the brink through a stimulus program, a bailout of the american auto industry, strengthening financial reform and creating a dedicated government bureau to protect consumers. changing the composition of the supreme court by appointing two impressive women. and of course the largest progressive domestic policy to expand our social safety net in a generation, the affordable care act. for obama supporters accustom to all those policy successes, so far the second term may seem like it's off to a slow start but i think that changed this week. the president just took a crucial step towards the first big win of the second term on tuesday. advocates for immigration reform broke an attempted filfilibuste. now nothing should stop the senate for an up-or-down vote for landmarking legislation that would provide the u.s.'s first comprehensive immigration reform in almost three decades. if that happens, president obama will become the first president to make a lasting mark on immigration polic
